Trickster Literary Journal
CALLING ALL NEW MEXICO WRITERS & ARTISTS
TRICKSTER 2022 will focus on work about “Food and Gardens of New Mexico.”
The submission deadline for Trickster 2022 has been extended to Friday, April 29, 2022!
Trickster is a literary journal published yearly by Northern New Mexico College. We are looking for unpublished poetry, fiction, nonfiction, artwork, and any combination therein. The landscape and cultures of northern New Mexico shape our perspective, but we’re excited to accept original work about our current theme.
In New Mexico, we are blessed with an abundance of unique family traditions, cultural backgrounds and intimate relationships with the land around us. Many of us rely on our rich soil and our acequias to grow our crops for food throughout the year and to share with others. We have all had the experience of gathering around the kitchen table with friends, family, and making deep connections and lasting memories there. Anyone who has tasted a homemade tamale, frito pie, red and green chile, bischochitos or chicos can relate to the beauty of New Mexico’s food culture and know they will not be able to find it anywhere else.
Limit prose to 5,000 words; send up to five poems.
Send multiple submissions in one document and please number your pages.
Email work as a .doc or .rtf file to: email@example.com.
Attach artwork as a high-res (300ppi) jpg, tif, or pdf.
Include a 50-word bio separately, in third-person voice.
All submissions are read anonymously. Include your name, address, and title of work(s) only in the body of the email. No identifying information should appear on the manuscript.
Simultaneous submissions are accepted, but please let us know immediately if work is accepted elsewhere.
